NEW HOUSE GUESTS


I have found a few new house guests, for some of them I have been looking for a long time, so I am quite pleased with myself  !I prefer my house guests to be small to start with and to stay small if possible so I can have many different ones.

  1. Great Plants! I still have to pick up some of those Agaves that you have. My Haworthia are all blooming right now—the carpenter bees LOVE ‘EM. I appreciate how you’ve shown them as singular specimens. Very nice! I don’t often move many of my potted plants because they are so vicious—but, perhaps I should do so for photos because they look very regal that way. Great Job!!

  2. What a nice collection of new friends. I like mine to start small, then grow and multiply.

    The fun for me is in the growing. I’m about to take my friend Miss Winnie a small Begonia in a lightweight pot. She gave me some cumbersome pots she could not manage. I’m so pleased with this Begonia and it will be perfect for her.

  3. I like the twisted plant best, though they are all really beautiful. its a rare talent to be able to look after so many plants (and no have them die along the way 😦 ) i hope i can grow my garden like this some day.

    • looking after plants is not so hard you know and you have to learn with ups and downs, I too killed a lot of plants in my life but you learn from it and try to do it better next time

  4. thank you for visiting my OOMMI blog, your plants are quite diverse and beautiful and you’re very knowledgeable!!!

  5. I hope you have a great weekend too! The plants look lovely – ditto your entire collection actually – although I must admit I threw out my Agave stricta when it got big as it was decidedly dangerous. I probably regret it now but I also threw out some tender Yuccas (these were impossibly sharp) and a couple of Opuntias.
